Cool trailer: Chronicle

For the last decade, superhero movies have dominated the box office, but few of them have strayed from the tried-and-true Marvel formula. It's always heroes, villains, and a lot of spandex. Well, not here. Chronicle looks to mix the mock documentary style of films like Cloverfield and Blair Witch with super powers.

What would happen if you and your buddies discovered something in the woods and developed super powers? If you're anything like these guys, you'd probably goof off a lot and mess with people. But what would you do after that? What happens when the novelty wears off and you have to go back to living life? Do you ignore your powers or use them on a daily basis? How would it affect you psychologically. Chronicle may tackle some of these issues, though it's a bit disappointing to see that one of the boys turns into a villain after just a day or two...some people just can't be trusted with super powers, I guess. Especially Kevin Bacon. Never let that guy turn invisible

Let's also hope this doesn't turn out like Heroes. That would be bad. Chronicle is directed by Josh Trank and written by Max Landis, two newcomers that don't have much of a track record yet, so it's completely up in the air. The cast is relatively fresh as well. From the trailer though, it might be worth it based on the unique visuals alone. The movie is set for release on Feb. 3, 2012.
